To satisfy various requests for materials and services, Scriba operates in the following fields:

Wine, food and cosmetics labels

5-manaresi Labels are an essential marketing tool, for production and consumption purposes. Labels contain information and instructions for use, they guarantee the product and stand for legality, they confer a specific character and a well-defined identity to the product, making it unique and recognizable among all others. In the ambit of adhesive labelling, SCRIBA enhances the image of your products, backed up by increasingly sophisticated and cutting edge technologies, highly qualified staff and competitive lead times. Our up-to-the-minute machinery enables us to use a wide range of printing techniques to satisfy the requirements of an increasingly discerning clientele and an ever evolving market. Printing techniques also enable the personalization customers need in order to stand out on an increasingly global market: from screen printing to offset, letterpress, flexography and combined techniques, with all types of finishes, hot and cold foil, plastification, coating, embossing; on various materials and for different industries: food and beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals.

Pros Lower costs thanks to a quick and easy application – The possibility to use a vast range of materials: natural or glossy paper, synthetic or bonded materials, combined with stickers and supports for all requirements – Die-cutting in any shape – The possibility to apply all types of finishes (hot foil, cold foil, UV coating, relief coating, embossing, etc).

Field of application – Glass or plastic bottles and containers


      In-Mould labels make a strong impact thanks to the extraordinary quality of their decorative elements and certainly represent one of the most modern techniques for plastic container packaging. The printing and packaging solutions used for these labels are often very complex and refined, with the intent of catching the consumer’s eye. The IML technique guarantees a perfect labelling result: totally devoid of glue residue, creases or bubbles. The label cannot be removed and is perfectly smooth and flat when applied to the container, similar to a framed picture. IML technology consists in decorating bottles, containers and other plastic parts directly in injection or blow moulds. The label is produced on a plastic film and the availability of different materials enables the production of one-piece containers already labelled and of completely recyclable decorated plastic parts.

      Pros Not only is it possible to recycle the used container but production waste too. The great advantage of IML technology is that the manufacturing process consists of a single phase. IML labelling makes the labelling machine superfluous thus integrating what used to be two distinct manufacturing phases in one single process. The exclusion of the labelling machine eliminates a potential source of machine downtime and increases efficiency all along the production line.
      Fields of application • Food storage containers • Plastic containers • Thinwall packaging • Injected tubes • Semi durable goods • Drinking glasses • Technical parts

      Thanks to their strong promotional impact, the use of shrink sleeve labelling has contributed to boost the sales of many leading brands. It is now of fundamental importance for products on display to attract the consumers’ attention, with a stand-out image that sets them apart from competing brands. Shrink sleeves offer a wide scope for decoration and are suitable for glass, plastic and even metal containers. They adapt to all shapes and are ideal when used as seals to ensure safety and freshness. Once it is heat shrunk, the sleeve adheres perfectly to the shape of the container. The decoration technique consists in heat shrinking a plastic tube which sheathes the container thanks to the use of hot air or steam. This form of packaging not only looks attractive but also protects the container during use and transportation.

      Pros • Decoration for containers of all shapes • The sleeves can act as safety seals (to prevent tampering) or to ensure freshness • Possible to allow for perforation or the application of tear-tape • Reverse printing ensures total protection of the graphic design • Ultra gloss finish, metalized effects, pearlescent and fluorescent inks • Highly resistant to the product contents • Single application process

      Fields of application • Plastic packaging and bottles • Glass packaging and bottles
